Demolished parts: tiered seating, changing rooms, reception area and staff rooms. Renovated parts: a 15 x 25 m fitness pool, a 1.20 m deep learners’ pool measuring 10 x 12.5 m, equipped with a movable floor over its entire surface. Changing rooms and plant rooms.
New facilities: public walkway on the same level as the pools, accessible from the new reception hall.
Fitness area: tonic showers equipped with a bucket for taking Scottish showers, two saunas and a hammam located on the mezzanine, overlooking the pools and replacing the tiered seating. 2400 m2 outdoor solarium with splash pad recreation area, paddling pool and indoor bar connected to the outdoor areas. Indoor extension of pool decks. Glazed canopy and descriptive signage visible from the street but more discreet from the city centre due to its set-back position.
